Getaway Dogs
Getaway Dogs
Getaway Dogs is the brainchild of songwriter Kai Killion, a Bay Area native who spent the first twelve years of his life in constant motion. The son of a Californian artist and a Brazilian immigrant, Killion was born in the States but spent his baby years in post-war Eritrea. His family returned to California, spending seven years in Santa Cruz, then moving up the coast to rural Point Reyes. They would eventually leave the US again, this time to spend a year living in Rio de Janeiro. It was during this year in Brazil, surrounded by a heavily musical family, that Killion came in touch with his Brazilian heritage and learned to play guitar. All the places he has lived and traveled have collectively imprinted in him a unique style of musicianship, lending natural roots to jazz, folk, soul, and Brazilian music.
Killion's first record, Mermaid Legs & Getaway Dogs, an acoustic solo project released in 2013, subsequently led to the formation of what is now Getaway Dogs, for which Killion recruited long time friend Samantha Stone to sing harmonies and occasional lead vocals. Though the rhythm section has rotated various times over the last two years, Stone remains a crucial component to the band’s ethereal, soulful sound. Her presence is felt heavily on their debut record, Lost In The Ebb, projected to release in August 2016.

Pat Hull's lyrically and vocally charged songwriting "goes in the direction of gently reinventing the genre rather than obeying its exhausted axioms" (Deli Magazine). Pat discovered and honed his craft in Chico, CA and returned to Brooklyn in 2010. In 2011, Pat, Michael Chinworth, and Jason Beck began a collaboration that would eventually produce "Light" and "Shed Skin."
